APC Commends Jonathan For ‘Agreeing’ He Imposed Wike On Rivers State
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has thanked former President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, for admitting that he imposed Nyesom Wike as Governor of Rivers State.
While commissioning the Nkpogu Bridge in Port Harcourt, the state capital recently, Jonathan had said, “I don’t regret making Wike a governor.”
However, the Rivers state chapter of the APC in a statement issued on Tuesday and signed by the State Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, stated that Jonathan’s statement showed that Rivers people never voted for Wike.
The statement reads, “This statement confirms that Dr. Jonathan alone and not Rivers people made Wike a governor.
“This statement by Dr Jonathan affirms our earlier stand that Rivers people never voted Wike into power.”
“It is based on this truism that Wike can now recoat and repaint projects initiated and executed by the administration of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and present them for commissioning as his own projects.
“It is this fact that he was never voted in by the people of Rivers State that made him to continue to embark upon projects that are inimical to the growth and progress of Rivers State and her people.
“It is based on this fact that Rivers State under Wike is now renamed Rivers of Blood as political killings continue unabated in the once-peaceful state.
